Last update was in April. It is now August. No updates. And I can only guess as to how many issues are open.
I really like this software. It is too bad it is dying.
VMware has hinted that the next release fo Fusion on the Mac may be a minor release to Fusion 13. If that’s true, then I wouldn’t be surprised if Workstation would follow suit if past versioning is any indication of the future. They tend to manage versions of Fusion and Workstation similarly.
I guess we’ll wait and see if @Mikero chimes in.
This is speculation but If they make the next version a minor version update to 17 and not a new major version 18, it’s likely not to require a new license. But only VMware knows for sure and until they say something, this is not a anything that I would get my boss agitated about until I knew for sure.
It could be worse. You could be paying a subscription that if you stop paying, your VMs turn into pumpkins.
